- West Africa focused Oriole Resources said it had secured a controlling position in Reservoir Minerals Cameroon for its early-stage exploration licences in Cameroon.

The company had formalised its 51% ownership of the local holding company, Reservoir Minerals Cameroon, that also held three of the newly-granted licences in central Cameroon.

The move followed the completion of an initial funding commitment of $1.56 million over two years at the Bibemi and Wapouze projects.

Completion of a drilling programme at Bibemi was expected to see the company meet its second expenditure commitment to acquire a 90% interest in all five licences.
